Another woman has come forward with claims about Adam Levine’s wandering eyes.
A college student from Alabama has become the fifth woman to raise questions about Levine’s alleged infidelity after speaking exclusively to the Daily Mail.
Ashley Russell, who has over 4,000 followers on Instagram, told the news outlet the Sugar singer started seeing her Instagram Stories completely out of the blue earlier this year before he started messaging her.
The 21-year-old college student said the 43-year-old singer would respond to her Instagram Stories showing off her workouts — specifically photos showing off her toned legs and glutes.

However, Russell claimed Levine would delete his messages after she read them.
Russell claimed the alleged news, which began in March, cooled after she told the soon-to-be father-of-three that he would be caught flirting with women online.
Russell told the news outlet that while she found it “strange” that the Hollywood star was texting her, she kept chatting to see how far he would go.
It comes after Levine denied the allegations, which led to two more women coming forward, and an interview the Maroon 5 frontman did with Cosmopolitan in 2009 has been unearthed in which he was very candid about his thoughts on infidelity.

E! According to news reports, the then 29-year-old singer said: “Instinctively, monogamy is not in our genetic makeup. cheating people. I cheated. And you know what? There’s nothing worse than the feeling of doing it.”
The star married Victoria’s Secret model Behati Prinsloo five years later in 2014. The couple have two children, Dusty Rose, 5, and Gio Grace, 4, and recently announced they are expecting their third child.
While Prinsloo has yet to publicly comment on the cheating allegations, a source close to the model told E! News: “Behati is upset but believes there was no physical affair.

“They were together all the time. She feels they are happily married and is shocked to find out what was going on behind her back.”
The source went on to say Levine was “disappointed in himself” and viewed the situation as a “wake-up call.”
Meanwhile, multiple sources have told People magazine that the star is making every effort to get her marriage back on track, adding: “He admitted he acted behind her back and behaved inappropriately. He admitted he acted like an idiot. She’s still very upset though,”
The source – who is close to Prinsloo – claimed the supermodel is still “100 per cent committed to her family”.
“Adam is very understanding of her feelings,” the source continued. “He’s trying his best to make things better. He never wants a divorce.”
